Martha's Vineyard Relay for Life

My sister Janette is probably the kindest and most loving person in the world. For the past 8 years she has participated in a 24 hour walk for cancer, it is called the relay for life. She puts together a team of people who not only raise money to help fight cancer but put together raffles, and make bags with loved ones names (who have fought or are still are fighting cancer) to light their path as they walk through the night. We all seem to know or have known a least one person in our lives to have had or is fighting cancer, it is a sad and hard experience for everyone, but it is a good thing we have people like my sister to make this struggle just a little easier. This year she has a personal goal to raise $1,000 for this event, and I would like to help her out by asking you to donate what ever you can to help fight cancer. To do this just go to her website and click on donate and start the process. Thank you

Birthdays and Helmets

First of all our beautiful baby girl turned 2 which is so hard to believe. And again she got totally spoiled. I do think that she literally believes that she is a princess. She wants what she wants and when she wants it. But at the same time she is such a happy girl and super sweet to her brother. She has discovered that the Lion king is the best movie ever and any girl that wears a dress is a princess.... maybe that is why she always insists on wearing dresses..hmmmmm. She is starting to puts multiple words together like my turn please mommy.. I like that one it's a demand with a please attached to it or shoot ball daddy.. when she plays basketball with BJ. She is just so fun to hear her talk all the time now. And on the other hand her brother just can not get a break. Just a few days ago he received his helmet to make his head not so flat.... and he HATES its!! Every time I have to put it on him he starts balling.. it is so sad. We have to go back to the doctor to make some adjustments and so hopefully he will learn to like it a bit better. Every time he moves it slips down in front of his eyes, so it makes him so mad because then he can see anything. These helmets are alot more work then I thought they were too..... I have to wash it every day and make sure that when he gets sweaty in it I put a cool blow dryer on it to keep the moisture from giving him rash and skin irritations... there is a list of about 20 things I have to do with this helmet every day..... oh the things that become apart of our lives:)..... poor boy.

Busy Busy Busy

I guess we have been a little busy lately so sorry for not updateing sooner....... First of all Spencer is now off of oxygen...... he got off on BJ's birthday which was Feb. 23rd so that was an all around great day!!! We are trying to get him off of his apnea monitor but apearently the company we are going with didnt download the memory to our doctor and so now i'm not sure if they still have it or how he did ..... Oh how I love people!!!! If they do not have the memory saved then he wont get off for another 2 months.... if they do have it still I hope he can get off now. And to add to this poor kids trails he will now be wearing one of those baby helmets. His head is really flat in the back but I guess his head is actually growing sideways instead of front and back. So on friday he got a plaster molding done of his head to make a helmet. We will receive that in two weeks. Poor Spence also has to go to physical therapy once a week for a while because he does not have full movement in his neck so I get to stretch his neck muscles about 3 times a day and then therapy once a week. And let me tell you he HATES his stretching. But honestly over all he is so good about all of these things that we have to do to him.... he is such a great baby. On the other hand.... Brooklyn is turning two this week and is a total hand full. Don't get me wrong she is a good hand full just constantly busy running circles around the kitchen table, holding her baby brother, escaping into the back yard to play in her sandbox and always saying mommy Dance. I think I will try to get her in a dance class to help get some of her energy out. But both kids are so happy and totally love each other. Spencer smiles and laughs every time he sees Brooklyn and she is always saying hi baby and hugging and kissing him. They are just super cute and we love them to bits!!!
